Blue Worlds

Within me are blue worlds shifting
Grating against the fault lines
Of a flippant modern attitude
Exposed in selfies and memes
While the heart thumps sadly at home
Longing to be noticed

I long to heal a parcel of this brokenness
I drift within a humming yellow cloud
Of extravagant unwanted information
My poet heart sewn onto my shirt collar
Available for use but easily bruised
Careless words trigger amethyst memories
I dissolve before a movie screen
Awake on a bridge above a childhood creek
An old song becomes my grandfather
In a stranger’s face I meet an old lover
Somewhere between the nose and eyelashes
I notice that you need someone
I take your hand
And relief overwhelms your face
